Deputy CM and former CM tested positive

GOA: Chief minister Pramod Sawant said that former deputy CM Ramkrishna Dhavalikar and former CM Churchill Alemao, both of whom have tested positive for Covid-19, are stable. “A team of doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has examined both,” he said.

Alemao and Dhavalikar were hospitalised after contracting the virus last week, but discharged within two days. While Dhavalikar got readmitted on Monday after a low-grade fever, Churchill was readmitted on Tuesday after complaints of breathlessness and fever. His wife Fatima is also readmitted to the same hospital. Sawant said that former CM Ravi Naik and Tivim MLA Nilkant Halarnkar, who also tested positive last week, are in home isolation and are doing fine. “I have spoken to Naik, and he is good,” Sawant said.
